A milestone of silent film with a history as rich and complicated as the story itself, The Passion of Joan of Arc was thought lost for nearly 60 years after it was made. The Saratoga Choral Festival will present the original 1928 silent film along with a live chorus, orchestra, and organist performing the original score at the SPA Little Theater on September 14. Andrea Goodman, the Saratoga Choral Festival’s Artistic Director, stopped by to talk with us about the performance and some of the challenges involved.
